However, doctors are more alarmed by the number of cases Maryland is seeing right now because it isn’t typical for this time of the year.
According to doctors, babies and toddlers who weren’t exposed to the virus for the past three years are getting the worst of it.
Although there are no vaccines for RSV, parents can reduce the risk by washing hands frequently, cleaning surfaces and avoiding exposure.
Symptoms include fever, coughing, wheezing, change or loss of appetite, and fatigue. Additionally, young children may also have difficulty breathing.
